Sturm und Drang

The central point of our Christian lives is our deep, abiding relationship with Jesus, not our public usefulness to others. Our endeavor to become like Christ should precede our activities for Christ. If we spend lots of our time in over-activity instead of being immersed in the great fundamental truths of God’s word, we will snap when the storm and stress come.
